Removing Eye Makeup

Written by Charlotte Wood (last updated August 24, 2022)

You know those women you see with really wrinkly faces and kind of scary eyes, those women who don't look necessarily natural? That unique look is most likely achieved through years of not taking off makeup consistently. Ewww! Removing your eye makeup is common sense for some and may be a habit to be developed for others, but regardless of where you are you can always use a quick little reminding of how and why to remove eye makeup.

The first and foremost rule of wearing makeup is to take it off daily, especially your eye makeup. If you don't it could result in not-so-hot lines, wrinkles, and spots on your face in upcoming years. ALWAYS take off your eye makeup. For me, not taking off my eye makeup would just make me feel gross and so I'd do it anyway, but for some that feeling of have makeup on late at night doesn't bother them so they just keep it on for convenience's sake. Don't do the latter. By removing your eye makeup daily (or every time you wear eye makeup) you avoid aging signs in the future and complexion issues in the present.

When you remove your eye makeup, don't just use water. Buy an eye-makeup remover and use that every time you take off your makeup. Don't choose a makeup remover that is oily, but rather pick an oil-free one. That way you don't clog your pores or make more of a mess when removing your eye makeup (use cotton balls or tissues to rub the makeup off).

My favorite eye makeup remover is the oil-free option from Neutrogena. It gets all the makeup off without making a mess of the rest of your face. Something else to remember when you take off your eye makeup is to always follow that by washing your face. You want to wash off any remaining makeup residue (especially if you wear any kind of foundation or other makeup). This will refresh your skin and clear off any makeup films and gunk from your skin. By washing your face morning and night you can keep your skin as oil free as possible and keep your pores clear.

Removing eye makeup isn't hard and should be done every time you wear eye makeup. You'll not only avoid scariness as you age, but you'll also avoid skin problems now. Removing eye makeup and washing your face is a simple part of taking care of your face and should always be done, no questions asked.
